Notepad++ on Linux

Notepad++ is one of the popular code editors and the fact that most of the users run Windows, it is available for Windows only. Some Linux users have surely missed it. Good news is that Notepad++ is now (unofficially) available as a Snap package for Linux user. Though this Notepad++ Linux application is not natively developed for Linux platform and actually runs on Wine, it’s now a command (or click) away for you.

All Ubuntu versions have Snap enabled by default. This means you can install Notepad++ on Ubuntu from the Software Center. For other Linux distributions, make sure that Snap support is installed and enabled.

This Snap package provides an easy way to install Notepad++ on Linux. If you want to use Snap applications on Linux Mint and other Debian or Ubuntu based distributions, use the command below:

sudo apt install snapd

After that, install Notepad++ with this simple command:

sudo snap install notepad-plus-plus

Once the installation completes, you can launch it from the search or by typing notepad-plus-plus in Terminal.

Done 🙂
